environment, the compliance rate will go up and then i'll see the number drop over time. so the answer to your question is, is i fix it by putting procedures in place that drive the ro in the right direction and put system i think i think if -- fixes in place that force the behavior to ensure the veteran gets the right decision. >> before i yield, e i remind you and remind everybody how many times secretary sat there and talked about accountability. you do all the system call stuff you want. if you are not motivating people to do it, i know they are highly motivated people who want to do right by the veteran. there's a lack of accountability there. and across the board, but with that i'll yield to mr. oh -- >> thank i apologize for missing the second half of the hearing. i'll get ab update how you responded to the specific issues raised by ms. price and the veteran service organizations that were here. so just briefly bring up two issues. one, is in el paso at fort bliss we have 1800 cases, 1100 are backlogged at the derail site in seattle. and so just a plea from cornel and william beau month

a demographic of veterans that have spent its full deployment come in various hostile environments, home. they are better educated now than they ever have been in history. they're also equipped with technology available that at a moment's notice can get information to virtually any question you have regarding benefits. the va pictures this as a disaster waiting to happen because these are the veteran that are filing complex claims. on november 7th, secretary shin seki took credit for reducing the backlog by one third since march. we caution this panel and everyone involved with va claims to don't take that as gospel. it's a big part of the claims process and that they are not telling people. the most insignificant type of claim is not a medical claim. it is called a dependent status change. you get married, have a child, get divorced, your child features out. it is one document with one attachment from your marriage certificate, divorce decree, what have you. those going to claims. they are adjudicated right alongside him unless a terminal lung disease for agent orange illnesses. unfortu

paradigm a much more conducive environment i think ultimately stand to lose a great deal as we go forward. so as i consider the achievements and this transformational moment, the one thing i would say is that there are a couple of characteristics of the american health sector that are going to remain somewhat unique to america. the first i would argue is that unlike every other industrialized country, united states has never really had what i would call a system. we refer to it as a health care system, but if you define a system is having a central administrator and a central decision-making authority, we've never had that. what we have is a collage of subsystems, both public and private here the medicare and medicaid systems, subsystems being some of the more significant public. our whole private health insurance, one of the more private systems but we also have entitlement care and the veterans administration. and uncompensated care that we all pay for in very inefficient ways, in the emergency room and in other ways as people are unable to pay for the own health care. so all of those s

, the environment. thank you for saying that. about your time in the 1990s talking about this issue on the federal level. approval from big food companies and to what extent are they talking about genetically modified food or whatever the issue? guest: of course there are. the producers of genetically modified foods are rather floored by what is going on. there is an enormous grassroots movement to try to get a foods labeled. labeled.should be people want them labeled. in the early 1990s, it was people obvious that wanted these foods labeled. the industry was totally opposed to it and is still opposed to it. the examples in europe in which foods are labeled genetically modified, people do not care about the issue and they still buy them. if the industry is in trouble so muchuse there is grassroots opposition to what it is doing, i think the industry brought it on itself by not being transparent in the first place. transparency would have taken it a long way. there would have been people in the 1890s who would have refused to buy genetically modified foods. by this time, there would have been 20 ye

their economy is booming and trade is taking place because they have created an environment in which israel is confident about its security and a lot of the old barriers to commerce and educational exchange and all that has begun to break down, that's something that the young people of gaza are going to want. and the pressure that will be placed for the residents of gaza to experience that same future is something that is going to be i think overwhelmingly appealing. but that is probably going to take place during the course of some sort of transition period. and the security requirements that israel requires will have to be met. and i think that is able -- that we can accomplish that, but ultimately it's going to be something that requires everybody to stretch out of their comfort zones. and the one thing i will say to the people of israel is that you can be assured whoever is in the office i currently occupy, democrat or republican, that your security will be uppermost on our minds. that will not change. and that should not mean you let up on your vigilance in terms of wanting to look out

environments was a matter of science fiction. the problem is that today it is a reality and in only six days, the law banning undetectable firearms act expires. so we have to act now. now, this law was enacted under president reagan in 1988. it was re-authorized under president clinton. it was re-authorized again in 2003 under president bush. when ronald reagan and bill clinton and george bush agree on something, so should we. this has always been a matter of bipartisanship and so we should continue that bipartisanship and pass this bill today. it's bipartisan baups it is a matter of -- because it is a matter of common sense that we don't want to make it easy for errorists and criminals to bring guns past metal detectors onto our planes and into security environments. -- secure environments. now, as the gentleman from virginia stated, in our view this bill is not perfect. i would have preferred to modernize the undetectable firearms act, to eliminate some loopholes in the law. y requiring that certain metal components be permanent or not . sily removed i would have liked to close that loopho
